Best SD Memory Cards for Fujifilm X-E3

Fujifilm X-E3 is a very compact yet capable APS-C camera that doesn’t pack the latest sensor found in cameras like the X-T3 and X-T30 but instead rocks the same 24MP sensor as Fuji X-T2. The older sensor is still very good and the camera is now much cheaper than when it was first introduced. It is capable of taking great photos, as well as 4K videos, all in a very lightweight package, making it an excellent travel camera. That being said, let’s take a look at some of the best memory cards for Fujifilm X-E3.
